Section hair and pull top half into a pony, as shown, with a rubber band. Then wrap a small length of hair from your ponytail around the rubber band to cover it and tuck the end back into the underside of the rubber band.

Next, tease the ponytail toward the top. Then, tie all hair together with a rubber band to form a low pony. Tease toward the top of the pony again. At this point, you can leave the ponytail as is OR pin up the tail of the pony – rolling and tucking the remaining hair underneath and pinning with bobby pins. Spray with hairspray for maximum hold.

I love this hair style. Simple is the best.

I prefer up…..I am also over sixty, length of hair below shoulder blades and I just prefer a finished look. This was easy enough for me to do by myself. Thanks for sharing.


Great Leigh!


Love it both ways. As I am over sixty and get much warmer I would put mine up. I will try it for Thanksgiving. Thanks

Agreed Claudiamarie. It’s a nice change of pace from the typical top knot.


Love this style, my hair is waist length and this is simple and a change from just throwing hair up in a knot. thanks


Thanks Michelle. 🙂
